Fumées vespérales.

Lumbini - Nepal.

La lumière décline. Les pèlerins allument des bougies et des bâtonnets d’encens. Flammes et fumées s’élèvent dans le crépuscule ; des mains les frôlent à tâtons comme si dans la demie pénombre elles cherchaient la clé d’un autre monde.

The light declines. Pilgrims light candles and incense sticks. Flames and fumes rise in the twilight; hands touch them with groping as if in the half-light they were looking for the key of another world.

Tricky conditions, and excellent result. The incense smoke must have been choking.

how poetic, and richly atmospheric...perhaps they are communing with another world through the medium of candles..
